Over the weekend, representatives from the Principality joined delegations from 100 other nations and international organisations at the Summit on Peace in Ukraine in Bürgenstock, Switzerland.  

Among those sent by Monaco to the major meeting of international powers, which was held between 15th and 16th June, was Isabelle Berro-Amadeï, the Principality’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation. She was accompanied by Carole Lanteri, Monaco’s official Ambassador to the Swiss Federal Council.  

More than 100 nations and international organisations gathered at the event, including Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky and 50 Heads of State and Government from around the world.

Their joint mission was to discuss ways of opening doors to peaceful solutions and negotiations pertaining to the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian conflict and ultimately ease Ukraine and Russia out of this dangerous and destabilising war.  

Discussions centred around nuclear concerns and food safety, as well as the human elements of the conflict, such as mass displacement and questions surrounding prisoners of war.  

A declaration was adopted at the end of the conference whereby the “principles of the Charter of Nations and international law were reaffirmed but also the common vision which emerged during the discussions around the three themes mentioned”.  

It was then agreed that efforts to meet these goals should now get underway.  

Berro-Amadeï personally met with Ukraine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dmytro Kuleba, during a side meeting where he thanked Monaco for its continued support, both bilaterally and within the multi-national framework.
